Celebrating the life of James F. Reagan
Thank you for signing James F. Reagan's Guestbook
Jim was a very dear friend. He was an inspiration to me for several years, as I am sure for many others. Heaven is rejoicing today as he resides there. He was a very dear and loving person, always there when the need for a prayer or a friendly face came around. Prayers for his family during this sad time. God is good!

Karen and Family,
Sorry to read of Mr. Reagan’s passing. Many years ago as a new believer your Dad gave me some encouraging words about following Christ that I have always remembered. He was a wonderful example of Christ to so many. His love for his Lord and for his family was evident throughout his life. May the Lord provide peace and comfort to each of you during this difficult time. Your family will be in my prayers. In Christ

My first thought was to say that Jim was a model individual and Christian that we should all strive to mimic, but that's not really fair for the rest of us - he set the bar that high. (And his humility would hate that I said that!)
Here's to an earthly life well lived, and an eternal life alongside the Savior he loved so fully.

Jim was such a fine man. Both of us had the privilege of working with him on various Aegis projects and found him to be the ultimate professional. He was a dedicated Christian who had a servant’s heart and was not ashamed to share his faith. The world needs more Jim Reagan’s. May he rest in peace, and may his family and church find comfort, as they experience this massive loss.--Cindy and Luke Miller

Being in a different state, I had only met my cousin (through marriage), James, a handful of times. However, rarely does a human make a mark on one's life as James did. Caring, thoughtful, kind and generous a human being as anyone could possibly be. If all of us had just a bit of him in us the world would be a much better place... Rest in peace, cousin. ❤️

My deepest sympathy to the family of Jim Reagan. It was exactly 25 years ago my family and I bought and moved into the little white house across the street from Ferry Farm Baptist Church. We dedided to visit the church one sunday morning.We must have been late because when we walked in the door everyone was staring at us. It was crowded, I had a 4 year old and a four month old baby. It was Mr Reagan who immediately jumped up welcomed us and got us situated. He followed through with our family and invited us to Wednesday night dinner. I cannot imagine how different our lives may have been if he hadn't welcomed us to church that morning. He encouraged me through the difficult years raising teenage daughters, guided me through my treasurer job at the church, comforted me during the death of my husband, sat with me while I waited for loved ones in surgery, visited me in the hospital, and attended my daughters weddings. He even hand crafted the most beautiful
rolling pin for her gift. Mr. Reagan touched my family's life. He was an example of what the love of Christ looks like here on earth. I have never known anyone with more Integrity and Honor. I will miss him deeply.

To the Reagan family,
I knew James Regan from Dahlgren base. I will always share those memories of him in my heart and soul forever. He was an outstanding husband and father to his family. There is an angel looking down at us and his name is James. I will keep him and his family in my prayers. May he rest in peace. I am unable to come for this service on Thursday afternoon since I am busy at work. God bless to all. Mike McGinn from work.
